Re: The Black Knight Rises

Very nice, just how rare is this bird? I have an early 21jewel model with the same type of crown that looks flat from that angle but it actually has bit of a dome and is signed.

Re: WRUW 11/19 through 11/25/2017

From the 1942 catalogue. Elgin didn't use names until the early 50s. So it is just known as a Lord Elgin 4608. Latest acquisition; an early '40s Lord Elgin 21 jewel 559 movement. The dial is a little rough but the movement and case are in very good condition. I'd love to know the model name. It's o...

Re: Need advice on hand puller

I have the Bergeon hand puller and find it too big for the tiny sub second hands also.
Fortunately the sub second hands come off with the dial easily, you just have to work over an area that safely catches the tiny bugger. You may be able to use a piece of rodico pull it off.

Re: Anybody know what this is? Patriotic Wristlet?

Just guessing, but possibly made to hold a pocket watch to the wrist?

Tank, just noticed that you are a fellow Cincinnatian! That model Elgin is a great looking watch and yours looks like it is in great shape. And that bracelet is a perfect match. Thanks Grumpy, it's some of those great looking watches in your posts that have inspired me to look more closely at Elgin...

Re: WRUW 11/12 thrugh 11/18/2018?

Starting the week off with this recent acquisition. The watch arrived about two weeks ago. I tried a black leather strap, then a brown, looked good, but lacking.
The Kreisler bracelet I purchased on a whim last week came in and after some cleaning and polishing it turned out to be a perfect match.
